Winter.

Cold.
Dark
Barren.

Yet we're still here together.

A year ago I got a t-shirt that read "Please Check Schedules" mocking +Metro Transit for their terrible-to-nonexistent trip information.

To my surprise, within the past year all the light rail stations went from "Please Check Schedules" to having real NexTrip times, all of the bus shelters I use have been replaced, excellent new bus stop signage is going in everywhere, and now even the bus stops at the light rail stations are getting NexTrip.

Great work +Metro Transit! Thanks for making me eat humble pie.

A way more articulate argument for closing Portland Ave than I could come up with!

After attending the second meeting for the design of the new Commons park I was disgusted to see there's still a road cutting it in half. Everyone seemed resigned that this was just how it was going to be. I refuse to accept an iconic new location for the city should have some ugly car sewer slicing it in half, so I created a petition for Hennepin County to close Portland Avenue. Give us back our .6 acres of land and let this be one stunning park for people, not cars. Please sign if you have a moment. Thanks everyone!

I'm on the bandwagon of referring to Minnesota as The North

And while we're at it lets also adopt a much more identifiable state flag. Something without settlers & guns.
